We have taken the very sad decision to cancel this years festival due to the ongoing uncertainty. We are working on how we can use this wonderful events community to help those in need in the coming months.
How can you, and we, react to this Covid -19 pandemic?
One is to organise neighbourhood help. Make sure someone knocks on the doors on your streets, or in your building. Do this yourself, but more importantly, as you knock on doors build a network of people to do it.
Even when someone is in isolation, a prior visit will mean someone can phone them every day. If you can offer or need help please contact us via the parish council, email firstname.lastname@example.org or volunteer here https://signup.com/go/XesqAoH
Action we can take.
